About Daniel & Susan Ruffner

After 36 years of marriage we wanted to venture out and work together again. We enjoy the beach, a good flea market and our 4 grandsons. We really enjoy seeing the families get excited about their time together at the Inn.

Daniel & Susan Ruffner purchased this barn in 2008

Why Daniel & Susan Ruffner chose Etters

We shopped all over the country to find an Inn we liked. The first time we saw Canna Inn we were excited to find such a spacious and interesting property. It has wonderful common areas for families to relax and enjoy as well a rich history dating back to 1850. Until we moved here , we didn't realize what a wonderful location it was, just a short drive from Harrisburg, Hershey, Lancaster, and Gettysburg. Families can find lots to do or just hang and enjoy the Inn and each other.

What makes this barn unique

,When you book this vacation rental your booking an entire Bed and Breakfast Sleeping up to 26 for retreats, business meetings or reunions. Breakfast not included.

Great Venue for that Wedding or big event , have the whole event in one place. ......

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from Canna Country Inn. Annually, the 8 of us (4 siblings and spouses) gather at different places to enjoy a 5-day/night reunion. Canna was wonderful, comfortable, and includes every amenity. It's located on a large property in a rural area near the Interstate, Gettysburg, Hershey, and other attractions. We'd gladly return to Canna in a future year. If at first glance you think the Canna is too large for your purpose because it sleeps up to 20-something--RECONSIDER! We used only the 4 bedrooms having king beds and en-suite baths. Never was a negative word uttered, and we never felt it was too large for our purpose.

A Perfect Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Canna Inn became our "home away from home" as we hosted 125 guests on site for our daughter's wedding. The charm of the restored barn and beauty of its grounds provided the perfect canvas for a lovely outdoor event. By renting the inn for the entire weekend, we were about to accommodate the wedding party, extended family members and the bride and groom. The well equipped kitchen facilities allowed us to cater the wedding ourselves and stay well within our budget. Guests were absolutely taken by the setting and felt comfortable lingering well into the evening. The innkeepers, Susan and Daniel, maintain a well-manicured property and seem to take great pride in all that Canna has to offer. Prior to the weddng they were always a phone call or email away and were a tremendous resource as we planned all the details. Looking back, we wiould not change a thing about hosting this very special occasion at Canna Inn. Finding it was like finding a dream come true.

It could not have been nicer!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a more idyllic place for the 26 of us to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday. There were 12 grandchildren were under 8 years of age. The kids said they liked the inn better than the beach house we rent each summer. They loved running the grounds, swinging the swings, playing in the fields, hanging onto the "Titanic Hammock." Indoors they were thrilled with the pool table, Foosball and air hockey tables as well as all the board games. Making s'mores on the open fire pit was just one more highlight. The 14 adults were equally impressed with all the upscale amenities throughout the home. Everyone of the 7 bedrooms had its own unique characteristic. I was worried that 26 people in one house would proved to be too crowded. Nope, everyone had their own space, we even had common areas we didn't use. We made great use of the dining room, clearing it away for square dancing with the kids. The house was so entertaining we chose not to go to Hershey Park this go around. We did enjoy the nearby state park as well as the Progress Grill restaurant. The cost of dinner was a fraction of what we would pay for the same fare in DC/Baltimore. The Ruffner's are exceptional hosts whose affection for the Inn is clearly evident. We look forward to returning.

Great house. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Our church leadership had its annual retreat here this weekend and everyone was pleased with the decision. The house is not only impressive, it is clean and well maintained. There was a fully stocked kitchen with utensils, dishes, cooking appliances (griddle, blender, baking pans, pans and pots, coffee maker, etc). We even used the bbq grill outside for lunch one day. We had lots for a fire, which everyone loved. The living spaces were very spacious for our group of 20 and the game room provided for additional entertainment. We would stay here again and highly recommend this place. An added bonus was the superwalmart which was a mile down the road!

What a weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Canna Inn was an incredibly perfect destination to gather a group of my daughter's friends to celebrate her 16th birthday. The house is beautiful, has everything you can possibly want, and on a weekend with temperatures in the teens, it was a super warm and cozy way to celebrate. 15 kids and 5 adults had plenty of space to spread out in separate spaces, play games, watch movies, sit by the fire, talk, laugh, and enjoy one another. We can't wait to come back and do it again when it's warm enough to enjoy the grounds around the house. Thank you!
